There are always those specific beauty products that made my heart aflutter. And let me tell you, it takes alot for a product to do that. Call it being in the business and seen this, done that, or just being tired of the overall hype of a miracle product that just does NOT do what it says it will. These are the products that I take my hat off (or wash my face)for! Some are new, some are not…….
So here are my personal all time Top 10 fav beauty products.
1. Sebastian’s Potion 7
Call it a styling cream, a hair moisturizer,hand conditioner, cuticle saver….this amazingly moist cream saves my ‘colored to within a life of itself’ hair. And yes, I do think it’s better than the infamous Khiel’s Silk Groom. Richer, and a little goes a LONG way. You can apply on damp hair as a conditioner, dry hair has a texturizer, curl enhancer, dryness-flyaway zapper. And the best part, you can reapply with no stickiness or buildup, at a much cheaper price.
2. Loreal’s Quickstick Foundation
Lightweight, medium coverage, the “yes I look like this when I wake up’ look. I’ve died and gone to heaven. A small complaint on that it doesn’t last for 10 hours straight, but the stick format makes it easy to touch up on the go. Kudos to a Stick foundation at $12.00 that really works.
3. BeneTint by BeneFit Cosmetics
Ah,to be 13 again. From a bottle. Yes, it’s a bit tricky to play with, but once you’ve got it down, you’ll play every day. Healthy, cheeky flush that looks completely natural…..why aren’t they making these in more colors? Do my ‘all day glow’ by applying first, then your watered down foundation over…..you’ll ‘blush’ all day long, and it’ll look completely natural.
4. Clinique ‘SuperFit Makeup‘
Thanks to New York, and the heat wave we had this summer, this seemingly simple foundation got my bows. ‘Superfit’ should read super stay. All day wear with no feel, no stickiness. Sold!
5. CiCi’s ‘White Lightening Shadow‘ Eye Pencil
Okay, call me a convert, and I’m praying the rumors of this company going under never happen. Want to feel hip? Trendy? This soft white pencil shimmers and glitters with the refinement of a soft winter’s day. Enough glitter to feel ‘with it’, but not enough to feel like an idiot at the age of 35..(not that I’M 35……)
6. Estee Lauder’s “Self Action Go Bronze” Tinted Self-Tanner for Face
Ah, Barbado’s in a bottle. You look warm, sunny, rested. Small irk is that it lasts only for a day or two, but for that sunny glow, I don’t mind.
7. Wet & Wild Lip Pencil 714 & M Professional LipLiner Pencil in Caramel.
Ah, you thought I was going to say W&W’s #666! Ha! #714 is alittle more plummy, and a cinch for the “I gotta get outta here fast!” makeup. A tie is Professional’s in a warmer brownie java color….
8. Lancome’s Aquacils Waterproof Mascara in Black.
Where have I been all my life? Wandering aimlessly from mascara to mascara….hoping a cheapie would work…when all along I could have……let’s not go there. My staple every day, every night..for fantastic “No I’m NOT wearing false eyelashes!” look all day long.
9. Jane Eye Zing in “#28-Rock Star”
- Your basic boring sand-taupe eyeshadow.
- But so perfect for defining the crease.
- Looks great on everyone…..and for looking awake.
10. Aveda’s Love Oil
Ahhh, love is in the air………..scent wise. Talk about the only scent that I can literally breathe in without coughing, gagging, and choking from that excessive alcohol based fake fumes…..sorry, my little nose just can’t take it. Thank god for Love……..a pure scent that just calms me down, perks me up, and just overall makes me feel, well, ‘lovely’.
Their light body oil spray is perfect for all over.
